Hi, different expert here. My name is***** you still need help with this?

Mercedes Mechanic: Amedee, Mercedes Technician replied 2 months ago

Good morning! Thank you for clearing that up for me.

Because of the age of the vehicle, I don't have a connector view or pin-out chart for the cluster. However, you can use the wiring diagrams I have provided you with to match up the color wires going to the cluster. If your saying that there are no numbers on the connector or the instrument cluster, I would recommend to get a new cluster connector from the same year, make, and model vehicle. You would likely need to get this from a junk yard or by searching the internet. If you need further assistance or would like me to clear anything up for you, please let me know.
